We ate at the tapas restaurant twice, finding the food imaginative and tasty. There was a significant difference between midweek and Sunday however, with service pretty slow at the weekend. It is pricey, which is fine if the service and food is excellent, but with the competition in Alicante it needs to be more reliable in its offer; several groups... More

we were staying at the hotel so it was very easy to pop in for tapas at this excellent restaurant. The cocktail menu is extensive and they are made well by expert staff. The waiters know their wine list and we were recommended a local red wine that was memorable. The Iberico was delicious and the portion was generous. The... More

Lovely atmosphere, attentive staff, well presented food. You have the option of dining inside or in the covered in terrace area both are lovely. Worth a look if you are in Alicante!

This is a beautful restaurant with persian rugs on the floor and a lovely decor. The owner Maria came to our table for a nice chat. We had clams and a pumpkin lasagne to start with and the red mullet and pork rib for mains. Everything was superb, delicate aromas and very good service. The winelist was also great.

On a recent visit to ALICANTE we stumbled upon a hotel with a nice looking open restaurant on a central street. We were looking at the menu when a waitress asked if we would like to try their Michelin star restaurant inside the Hotel. We took a table in the restaurant and the waiter at our table took a good...

We went to Monastrell for our wedding anniversary as it is definitely suited to a special occasion. The staff were impeccable and the food was exquisite. They made us feel special without imposing and the 'Happy Anniversary' message on our chocolate pudding was very much appreciated.

Ate here in two parts - firstly in the bar for a glass & tapas before heading out to eat elsewhere. We were the only ones in there, but that provided opportunity to chat to the waiters. Secondly was to eat from the menu - the cherry gazpacho soup was superb. A little brown bag of bread with olive oil... More
